Amber Valley grants up for grabs

Community groups and causes that benefit Amber Valley could receive a windfall of up to £1,000 if they take part in an innovative scheme before the deadline on Friday, July 19.

For the second year running affordable homes provider Futures Homescape has launched its community grant giveaway where groups can bid for cash to support their work.

The ‘Your Vote, Your Choice’ scheme gives residents the opportunity to decide which groups or clubs will get the cash in a voting event in September. Grants are available for any amount between £100 and £1,000 and the message is that no project is too small.

Sarah Whattam, community development officer, said: “Any groups who haven’t applied yet will need to get their skates on. It would be such a shame if a group that adds so much to the local community missed out on what could be vital funding because they missed or didn’t realise there is a deadline.”

Bids can be submitted online at Call 01773 573100 to find out more.
